He said there’s only room for one Khan in wrestling, suggestion Nick quit WWE. You can watch below. Roman Reigns Offered Match In Top NJPW.
Cody Rhodes reacted to rumors of heat with other AEW EVP’s during a media call.
“Well, when I heard that story was floating around, it is one of the things I chopped up as we’ve been very successful, AEW, and with NXT losing the Wednesday Night Wars, that created a lot of anger,” Rhodes pointed out. And I understand there’s a lot of hardcore NXT and WWE fans out there, and that’s why those stories stories like that don’t surprise me. I think people need to cling to something, and as sexy as that story is, I talk to Matt and Nick everyday.
“I talk to Kenny [Omega] very often. I support their projects fully. They’ve been supportive of all my projects, and we would not be able to put this show on the air, Tony’s [Khan] the man and Tony’s the boss, but we would not be able to put this show on the air if the four of us were not functioning as one team. Unfortunately, it’s not very sexy to say, but there’s no truth to that. Again, we’re one team , now with us expanding onto TBS, we will remain one team.”
